It's a shrimp-eat-plankton world out there, and small fry will easily get hooked on Chomp!, the fast and finny food chain card game from Gamewright. With this deep-sea deck depicting sharks, seals, and assorted big and little fishies, players can engage in several versions of the card game War (as in Portuguese man-of-) by flipping over a card from their school and being the first to devour something lower on the food chain played by an opponent. An electric eel instigates a feeding frenzy whereby even a little crawdad gets to take a bite out of a great white, but beware an Octopus Ink-Out--it muddies the water enough to penalize any player who attempts to chomp another. Versatile and easy to learn, Chomp! provides some silly sequencing fun for kids to sink their teeth into.--Tony Mason
From the Manufacturer
Plunge into a fast-paced undersea world where life is survival of the quickest. Identify the lowest creature in the food chain then slap it before other players scarf it down. Big fish chomp little fish and everyone chomps plankton. Watch out for the ink-squirting octopus and if you spot an electric eel, get ready for an all-out feeding frenzy! Collect all the cards and you're ruler of the deep blue sea! What You Learn, Chomp! is a great tool to help teach children about the food chain. Players learn about the hierarchy of ocean species through employing skills such as visual discrimination and sequencing. It also helps to sharpen reflexes and teaches quick thinking and analysis while playing a fast-moving game. Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award-2002.
